In the pipeline

Will be exceptionally busy for the next couple of months or so, and consequently won't have much time to update. In brief, this is what's going on.

  • Newsweek Feature No specifics on exactly when this will come out, but I have been interviewed by Newsweek and will feature in an upcoming issue. Most likely this will be limited to the Asia edition, but will probably appear translated in the Japanese edition too. I've also been photographed for the cover. Very vague on specifics.

  • The Japanese Tradition Remember that sushi video I sneakily subtitled and unleashed on the world? The production company has been in touch and wants me involved in a new production they're currently working on. Again, vague on specifics, but will find out around the end of this month. I will not be putting this on the net.

  • Buying a House Decided to put my citizenship to good use, and am currently waiting for the outcome of a mortgage application. Assuming it all goes well, most of the next few months free time will be taken up organising removals, redoration etc.

And now back to work.


  1. I look forward to seeing your involment in another funny video.


  2. Recording the narration for the English version Friday evening. It won't be me reading it, but I did script it and will be overseeing the recording so hopefully it will turn out well.

  3. Does this mean you'd be willing to forgive the person who originally let the sushi video get out, whoever he or she may be? ;-)

  4. Well it's all turned out for the best anyway, and the studio seems to have overlooked my initial infringement, so can't think of a reason why not really. Besides, I'm sure it was a very wide chain of people responsible.

  5. I know someone who could put it on the net. Awesome news though. What are you going to be in Newsweek for?



  6. Hi Coal,
    or, shall I call you Kaoru Miki? I like your profile. I think it's about time we got back in touch, don't you? don't know how else to track you down. please let me know how to get in touch.
    Like your profile and what you said about crowds. It eerily rings a bell...!
